Ave Maria University offers a special welcome to homeschool students

Homeschool students love Ave Maria because they find the rigor of academics challenging, engaging, and truly useful. Parents appreciate that the moral climate on our campus respects and supports the values which they have instilled at home. Our pro-family culture is welcoming, and it’s not uncommon for siblings to attend university side by side or one after another. We are proudly Catholic, rooted in our faith, and open to engagement with the world. We believe very strongly that students must grow virtue in freedom and our job is to create an environment that encourages the flourishing of faith and a spiritual, emotional and social maturity that will last a lifetime.
When you take into account the unswerving promotion of Catholic values, the strong core curriculum, and the presence of an impressive and faithful faculty, Ave Maria stands as an exciting new option available to American Catholics today.

Are campus visits available?

Absolutely! We have Open House days throughout the year, but also welcome you to schedule a private visit to our beautiful campus in southwest Florida. Bring the whole family, and make sure to schedule time to enjoy the beach too!

How does a homeschool student apply for admission?

Our application process for homeschool students is the same as for any other applicant and we are proud to offer the same scholarships and financial aid opportunities as well.

Step one: Complete an Application

Complete our free online application.

Step two: Submit Official Transcripts and Test Scores
